The art of listening

Have you ever felt while interacting with someone, they aren’t really listening to you? Instead, it seems they catch some of your words, grasp the idea, and then say whatever comment crosses their minds. This isn’t new, but it has started to infuriate me.

Maybe you remember that post about the “Quarantine Stages”. Well, 👉👈 at this point, I guess we are beyond those stages. This is now our daily life, one that was learned under stressful conditions but it doesn’t surprise us anymore.
